Course Description

A technical elective course in the Associate of Applied Science Degree in the Machine Manufacturing Technology program. Introduces the basic operation and setup skill used with Techno (G & M compatible) controlled CNC Routers. Prerequisite: MCH 281. Audit available.

Addendum to Course Description

CNC Machine Panels - In this module the student is introduced to the functions of the Buttons, Switches and Keys found on CNC Machine Control Units (MCU) for the control of the functions of the control panel display, machine operation, feed, spindle speed, tool changing, axis motion, automatic and manual operation of the machine tool.
CNC Modes - In this module the student is introduced to the five CNC Modes of Operation; Manual; Manual data Input (MDI); Edit; Program Operation - Memory (Automatic) & Tape.
CNC Key Sequences - In this module the student is introduced to the Key Sequences of CNC machine operation for CNC Routers.
CNC Program Verification - In this module the student is introduced to the Concepts of CNC Program Verification such as: Safety Priorities; Running Good Parts; and Verification of Programs.

Intended Outcomes for the course

 The student will understand and demonstrate fundamental CNC machine operation to produce machined parts within required tolerances.  
 
 This course is based on performance outcomes. The following performance outcomes are based upon established industry standards. The student will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the following:
  • Functions of the Buttons, Switches and Keys found on CNC Machine Control Units (MCU) for the control of the functions of the control panel display, machine operation, feed, spindle speed, tool changing, axis motion, automatic and manual operation of the machine tool.
  • The five CNC Modes of Operation; Manual; Manual data Input (MDI); Edit; Program Operation - Memory (Automatic) & Tape.
  • Key Sequences of CNC machine operation for: Machining Centers.
  • CNC Program Verification such as: Safety Priorities; Running Good Parts; and Verification of Programs.  

Course Activities and Design

  
MCH 282 €“ CNC Router Operation will be presented by means of audio-visual presentations, demonstrations, lab experiences, and research activities. The course activities and design emphasize the development of skills and knowledge outcomes prescribed by established industry standards. The identified outcomes will be achieved by means of individual and team activities.  

Outcome Assessment Strategies

OUTCOME ASSESSMENT STRATEGIES:
1. LAB ACTIVITIES - Participation in structured laboratory exercises with the emphasis on developing skills or increasing expertise in the areas of study identified in the module packets.
2. FINAL ASSESSMENT - An assessment in the form of a written exam and/or practical application that addresses the subject areas identified in the module packets. Students are required to complete final assessment activities with 85% competency.
